Vonn beats Fenninger to clinch World Cup super-G title

MERIBEL, France (AP) — Lindsey Vonn won the World Cup super-G title for the fifth time after winning the last race in the discipline on Thursday at the season-ending finals.

The day after clinching the downhill title, the 30-year-old American extended her record to 19 crystal globes.

Vonn held a slender eight-point lead over rival Anna Fenninger heading into the race, and was under pressure after the world super-G champion posted the fastest time.

Vonn was only .01 second ahead at the first time split but then pushed it to .41 ahead at the second.

Despite landing awkwardly after a jump, Vonn kept accelerating and finished .49 clear of Fenninger, who gained some ground on Tina Maze in the race for the overall title.

Maze finished third.
